Marcel's Journey to Thailand

Current Location

Kanchanaburi Thailand

Hello! My name is Marcel Cantu and this year I am teaching English to elementary students in Thailand. I am so excited for all of the adventures to come and can't wait to share them with you!


This week I moved to my new home in Tha Sala, which is a town in the province of Nakhon Si Thammarat. I will be teaching in South Thailand right next to the beach! 


It can be difficult to integrate into a community when you do not speak the language. As I learn Thai, I have also integrated myslef into my community be learning more about culture and art. 

Field Notes

Thailand is home to many amazing creatures. It is known for its elephants and monkeys, but also has oceans teaming with coral and sea life. 


These are photos from my last week in Bangkok before moving to Tha Sala. I have been eating many different types of food, exploring the city, and teaching English to seventh grade Thai students!
